Hi! I'm Helen Marjan and I'm the Joint Managing Director and the Director of Studies at Lorna Whiston.

I have been involved in teaching in Singapore since 1989, and have had the opportunity during this time to teach English to students from all over the South East Asia region, including Thailand, Indonesia, Korea, Taiwan and Japan. I have also worked in local Singapore schools, teaching English to both local and overseas students, and thus have a very thorough knowledge of the Singapore Education system.

I graduated with a four year upper second class Honours degree in Modern Languages from Hull University, UK, then went on to take a Post Graduate Certificate in Education with a specialism in language teaching. Prior to coming to Singapore I taught language in both England and France, working mainly with 12-16 year olds.

I am frequently involved in designing, writing and conducting teacher training programmes and seminars in the field of TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) and have designed and written many English language programmes and materials for students of all levels of language proficiency.

I believe that for students to have success with language learning, classes must be enjoyable and students need to be motivated. I also believe that good teachers never stop learning and a few years ago I took a Masters degree in Teaching English to Young Learners with the University of York, UK.

大家好!我是Helen Marjan,Lorna Whiston 學校的聯合管理董事兼教務經理。

1989年,我在新加坡開展了教育工作,期間有機會教授來自東南亞國家的學生英文,包括泰國、印尼、韓國、台灣及日本。我亦曾在新加坡的本地學校任教, 學生有本地和海外的,因此對新加坡的教育制度了解甚深。

我以二級甲等榮譽成績畢業於英國赫爾大學現代語言系,及後修讀學位教師教育證書課程(PGCE),主修語言教育。在來新加坡前,曾在英法兩國教授12-16歲青少年語文。

我亦經常為TESL(作為第二語言的英語教學)的領域設計、編寫、領導老師培訓計劃和研討會,並編寫過很多英語學習課程及教材予不同能力的學生。

我認為課堂生動有趣,能激發學生潛能,才有好的語言學習成效。我亦相信優秀的老師是永遠不會停止學習,所以幾年前,我在英國約克大學修讀文學碩士,主修年幼者的英語教學。
